are sick of this crap. they want us to concentrate on real things. >> now, wouldn't it be a logical question since it has been stated and confirmed, as you just said, governor, that eric cantor was told about this petraeus situation. wouldn't it be logical to ask did mr. cantor call the white house and say, "what are you going to do about this, are you aware of this"? why are they pointing at everybody except the one congressman we know knew something, their fellow colleague mr. cantor. >> the republican head of the house intelligence committee, congressman rogers, he didn't know. he should have words with eric cantor. why didn't eric cantor tell the republican head of the intelligence committee in the house. >> i served on the intelligence committee for nofour years in congress. this is what gets my irish up. there was a knucklehead who did this video that dishonored the prophet mohamed. >> right. >> there were protests all over the world in egypt, libya, tripoli and may or may not happen 400 miles away in benghazi regardless. but that's what susan rice was saying. there were prote

being asked which if you aren't able to suppress the palestinian rocket fire using aerial attacks as we've seen over the past 48, 72 hours, do you need to go in with a ground invasion? and that is what some people here are questioning. is that the only solution in the eyes of the israelis? certainly from a palestinian perspective they'll say they have the ability to fire rockets even beyond a ground invasion as they did in 2008. >> ayman, thanks so much. >>> we take you to washington where high stakes meetings are under way at the white house this hour. and also on the hill. first though to the white house where the president convened a pow-wow minutes ago with congressional leaders there to talk about the tsunami of tax hikes and spending cuts set to go into effect at the end of the year known as the fiscal cliff. the president offering these remarks just a short time ago. take a listen. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we've got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families, that our economy remains strong, that we're creating jobs, an

. >> i certainly don't think it was the ideas. i think that the ideas carried the day for us and the success that we had, though it obviously wasn't enough to win the race, was based on the candidate mitt romney and on his ideas. >> the ideas carried the day? what is he talking about? those ideas are why romney came in second place. this election was a rejection of the policies romney stood for. but too many republicans just don't get it. right now we have incredibly important issues to deal with, on tacks, jobs, immigration, marriage equality. but how account country move forward if the gop is still stuck with the ideas of the past? joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and karen finney, msnbc political analyst and former dnc communications director. richard, let me go to you first. i want to talk about this lunch at the white house. it's pretty unlikely we'll ever see mr. romney enjoy joining the obama administration, sbt it? >> based on the readout that we got from that meeting, i would say so. they talked about where there migh

companies like bain capital. they include some of the fortune companies. they use the language of small business to provide tax breaks for wealthy entities. but if you really care about the economy, which we all should, then we e need to look at things like extending the payroll tax cut for the year or its e equivalent. the nonpartisan group has said that's much more important to helping the fragile economy than providing a few folks at the top with another tax break. so we should be looking at those kind of measures that put a little more money in the pockets of 160 million americans who will go out and spend it rather than providing another tax break to those at the top. >> one of the toughest questions, entitlements. are you willing to make cuts in medicare and medicaid and social security? >> well, the issue is how we make those cuts and savings. so we should find savings in medicare. we should do it by building on the economies we have in the affordable care account, which says we should move away from the fee for service system that drives up cost and move toward a system where we
